So, we inadvertently discovered Hubby's gluten intolerance when our whole house went gluten-free last May after our daughter's diagnosis.

We noticed his GI symptoms (which we didn't realize were symptoms at the time) plus the blistery rash on his fingers cleared up when he would go without gluten for weeks at a time (the non-Celiacs eat gluten when not at home).

We figured we'd go for the DH/Celiac diagnosis via the skin test to avoid endoscopy. Well, we've contacted an allergist/asthma center, a dermatologist, and a GI docotor in our area, and none of them do the skin test. How can this be?????

A medical diagnosis is pretty important to Hubby, but we'd like to do it without an endoscopy if possible. For having such an easy time getting my daughter diagnosed, it's been nothing short of hitting a brick wall with Hubby.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

My first thought would be to contact a local support group and ask for someone they can recommend ... either that their members see, or maybe is an advisory member to the group.

Good luck!

The Denver chapter site is no longer running, but I do have a contact name so I'll try there. What a big pain!

I went to the dermatologist when I first got the rash and he did the biopsy in the office. It's weird that the one you talked to won't do it. Usually it is the dermatologists that do skin biopsies for all kinds of things...hopefully you will find one that will. Mine did two- one of a blister and one of the skin directly beside the blister. Good luck.
